Outdoor showers can be quite handy, so that you know you’re going in clean before entering a pool. It’s helpful, especially  if you’re having a pool party and you have several guests over. One of the worst things about pools are how so many people go in for a swim unclean. Well, with outdoor showers, there’s no excuse for them!

With outdoor showers, the main things you want to focus on are its material, hot/cold water option and mounting options. Outdoor shower fixtures aren’t too expensive either, most are in the range $150-$200. Here we have compiled a list of the top outdoor showers for 2020:

It is made from stainless steel (SUS304) with a high brushed  nickel finish, which is very durable, corrosion and scratch resistant. It can be used both indoors and outdoors.
